Image In The Meantime

10/15/2017 - 12/3/2017

The Bible tells us that in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth and everything was good. In fact, it was perfect until sin entered the world and things fell apart. The Bible tells us at the end of time, Jesus will return and God will make all things perfect again. What do we do in the meantime? This series will answer the question: what do you do when there is nothing you can do to change the situation?

Image Address The Mess

4/23/2017

 

Many people believe that the Christian life is about avoiding messes and staying out of trouble. But if you study the life of Jesus, you will find that He went out of His way to get right in the middle of messy people's lives. As it turns out, your messes and the messy people you meet along the way might be your greatest opportunity to become more like Jesus. Following Jesus isn't about avoiding something; it's about becoming something. Join us as we learn to address all the messes that life brings our way.


Image Who Needs God

3/12/2017

 

It seems that more and more people are turning their backs on the church. Why? Many people believe that instead of solving the problems of humanity, religion actually is the problem. What if the god that many people are walking away from isn't the God of Christianity in the first place? It's time to set the record straight and get a clear picture of this God who has revealed Himself through Jesus Christ.


Image The Legend of Joe Jacobson

2/19/2017 - 3/5/2017

 

When things are good, we tend to forget about God. When things are bad, we question whether God is good or even if He cares. If anyone ever had a reason to give up on God, it was Joseph, Jacob's son. He was abandoned by his brothers, thrown in a well, sold into slavery, falsely accused of rape, and sent to prison. But in the face of incredible odds, Joseph believed that God was with him and acted accordingly. In this series, we will learn that if we act as if God is with us (because He is with us!), we will begin to see God in the midst of both the good and bad circumstance that come our way.

Image RE:SOLUTION

1/15/2017

 

Traditionally, the new year is all about what we can do to make ourselves better people. The result is that churches, health clubs, debt counselors, and vitamin shops do a booming business. But we tend to forget that the people we respect the most didn’t devote their lives to becoming the best versions of themselves. They devoted their lives to making a difference in the world . . . or in someone’s world.


Image Light Of The World

12/4/2016 - 1/1/2017

 

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but not for the reasons most people associate with this particular holiday. The Christmas story was complicated. Most of us can relate to life being difficult--especially at Christmas time. What most of us fail to realize is that Jesus came as the Light of the World to overcome the darkness of anger, shame and disappointment. Join us as we gain deeper insight into the birth of the Savior.


Image Making Change

10/23/2016 - 11/27/2016

 

People get funny when you talk about money. But ignoring the path you are on financially doesn't make much sense. Wise people look at the direction of their finances regularly to see if they need to make any mid-course corrections. Investing in a brighter tomorrow starts by Making Change today. In this series we will look at biblical truths about finances and how to find freedom in a debt-saturated world.


Image Destinations

9/18/2016 - 10/16/2016

 

If you've ever ended up in a place you never wanted to be, you understand the principle of the path. This principle simply states that you will end up wherever the path you are on leads. To get where you want to go, you must choose the right path because direction--not our good intentions--determines our destinations. In this series, we will discover that God will show you the correct path to take if you will trust in Him.


Image Yes/No

8/28/2016 - 9/11/2016

Too often, we would rather ride the fence than let people know exactly where we stand. But in this series based on Matthew 5:37, we will learn the appropriate times to use these words and how how to back them up with our actions. Jesus used these words at the right times and for the right reasons. If we learn to do the same, our lives can have extraordinary focus and purpose.

 


Image Summer Blockbusters

7/10/2016 - 8/14/2016

 

Each summer we spend some time looking at clips from popular movies and our pastor creates a message based upon the themes from the movies. This is a great time to invite non-church folks to visit and check out NLCC.

Image Twisting The Truth

5/22/2016

It is very common these days for people to twist God's truth in order to make it say what they want it to say. Each time a person believes a twisted truth, it has the potential to destroy relationships, cloud your decisions, and distort your view of God. This series will help us recognize twisted truths and overcome them with the help of God's Word and God's Holy Spirit.

Image Losing Your Religion

4/3/2016

 

Most people believe there is a higher power out there somewhere. Since the beginning of time, men and women have established elaborate rituals and traditions in an effort to bridge the gap between the seen and the unseen; between the natural and the supernatural. Each of these systems provided formulas for communicating with and securing the blessings of a particular deity. But none of them provided the one thing that humans desired most--assurance.

But with the birth of Christianity, all of that changed. Join us for this new series to learn how Jesus' message serves as the fulfillment of religion.


Image Right In The Eye

2/14/2016 - 3/27/2016

 

"It's my life. I can do what I want, when I want, with whom I want." That mindset didn't work for ancient Israel. It isn't working in America today. In this series we will look at the book of Judges to see where the Israelites ended up by following this line of thinking. And if we will pay attention to God's Word, we can avoid making the same types of mistakes that God's people did in the Old Testament


Image Jesus and We

1/10/2016 - 1/31/2016

 

Many times people talk about Jesus and me. That is good because a personal relationship with Jesus is the only way to get to heaven. But you alone are not the body of Christ. We (Christians) are the body of Christ. And we can do infinitely more together than we can do apart. We the church will be faith-filled, big-thinking, bet the farm risk takers for the glory of God. In this four week series, we will look at some core beliefs upon which New Life is built.

Image Come To Worship

12/06/2015

 

Everything changed the moment Jesus was born. It is the only time in history that God became flesh. When Jesus invaded our world, He offered to forgive us of our sins and adopt us into His family. When we grasp how far He came and the cost of the gift He offered, we can’t help but Come to Worship. In this four-week series, we will discover different ways to worship God: lifting your hands, bringing your gifts, pouring out your heart, and bowing before Him.


Image Transformed

10/4/2015 - 11/22/2015

 

The world is shouting for our attention with answers to our relationship struggles, solutions to our financial trouble, and explanations to our search for meaning. But the world's promises leave us empty and searching for more. God's Word is the only answer that promises to TRANSFORM every area of our lives from the inside out.

8/23/2015 - 9/13/2015

 

Can you imagine what could happen if we gave control of our life to God? It’s scary, but the benefits can change the world. The story of Elisha will challenge people to answer God’s calling and take the risks that are necessary to do His will. It's time we start taking risks and making decisions the world doesn’t understand. Come see what life can look like when we let go…when we decide to have Ridiculous Faith.

Image God Never Said That

6/7/2015 - 6/28/2015

Too often we hear advise that sounds nice, but it has no Scriptural foundation.  In a nation that is increasingly biblically illiterate, it is imperative that Christ-followers know what is and is not in the Bible.  This four-week series tackles common myths about God, like “God wants you happy” or “God never gives you more than you can handle,” and how those myths keep us from having a deeper relationship with Him.

The spiritual life can be compared to a journey.  You are either moving toward spiritual maturity, or you are moving toward a hardened heart.  It is impossible to be in neutral.  In this series, we will look at what it takes to be a fully devoted follower of Jesus.  We will find out that it is possible to discover where you are on your journey, and what it will take to move closer to Christ.


Image The Counselor

3/15/2015 - 4/5/2015

Many times people would come to Jesus with a need.  Instead of immediately meeting that need, Jesus would often ask them probing questions that would force them to decide what they really believe.  Questions like: "Why are you so afraid," "Do you believe I can do this," "Do you want to get well," and "Why do you doubt?"  People think they need answers, but what they really need is a Counselor.

 


Image The Truth About U

1/18/2015 - 1/25/2015

There's a reason that self-assessments and reality shows are so popular today. There is something exciting about learning the truth about ourselves, even when the truth is hard. In this series we'll look at how some of Jesus' deepest teaching came from real-life everyday moments to discover the truth about ourselves.

Image Designed By God

9/1/2013 - 10/27/2013

Did you know that you are a master piece designed by God? Every believer was custom-made by God to play a strategic role in the church. That means that the church needs you to do what God designed you to do to build up His kingdom. In this series, we want to help every Christ-follower to discover three things:

1) Your spiritual gift(s) (What you are equipped by God to do)
2) Your style of serving (How you can best serve in the church)
3) Your passion for serving (Where you can best serve in the church)

Paul described the church as the body of Christ. This series will help you understand where you fit in the body.

In this series we will discover what the best-selling book of all time has to say about being under authority.

Before marriage, we all had an idea what our married lives would look like.  But what do you do when your expectations and reality collide?  You've got several options at that point, but there is only one option that honors God and your spouse.  We must learn to transform our expectations and look to God if we are to experience marriage as God intended.


Image Fully Devoted

3/17/2013 - 3/31/2013

When someone asks you "How is your spiritual life going?" what comes to  mind?  How do you define spirituality?  How do you define spiritual  growth?  The Bible is very clear on the subject."Whoever claims to  live in Him must walk as Jesus did" (1 John 2:6).  In this series we  will look at the mile markers on the journey to spiritual health which  will result in spiritual growth.  Where are you on the journey?

When it comes to the church, the number one issue for non-Christians is actions speak louder than words.  It does not matter what we say we believe if our actions are not completely consistent with our words.  This series takes a journey through the pages of the Bible to find folks who live what they say they believe.


Image Church The Way It Should Be

8/8/2010 - 9/19/2010

If you want to hear some interesting comments, spend some time in the next week asking people whether they go to church or not. If they don’t go, ask them why. I’m willing to bet that every reason they give for not going to church is something that I don’t like about church as well. Every church in existence has to fight constantly to keep the focus of the church where it needs to be. And if you want to know what church is supposed to be like, go back to the very first Christian church established on the planet. It is described in the book of Acts. The focus of this series is to be the church that God wants us to be.


Image Yes/No

7/25/2010 - 8/1/2010

We are the sum total of the things to which we say "yes" or "no." To live a life of purpose and meaning, I must learn to say "yes" to the things of God.


Image Summer Blockbusters

A door is a means of approach, admittance, or access that allows us to move from one environment to another.  Every day we face choices about which doors to open and which doors to close.  In this series, we will see that our choices have serious consequences.  Which door will you choose--the one that leads toward God, or the one that leads toward destruction?


Image Stories of New Life

God has done so much in and through New Life over the last eight years. This message looks at some of those stories and how we intend to continue to reach out to people who are far from God.


Image Big Mo

3/14/2010 - 3/21/2010

Search the Scriptures and you will see that life is a series of ups and downs. Since even Jesus faced high and low times in His life, we need to learn from Him how to be faithful no matter what circumstances we face.

Image Building a Great Life

1/10/2010 - 2/28/2010

Most people aren't really living, they are existing.  But when Jesus said that He came to give us an abundant life, surely He had in mind something more than surviving from day to day.  In this series we will look at what the Bible says is required for people to thrive rather than merely survive. 


Image Winning the Game

1/3/2010

People can be unbelievably frustrating at times because very few people seem to know the rules of life.  This message considers what rules are required to be a winner in life.
